Day – 4 of Garbottam year 2015-16 is disappointing!

Day 4 of Garbottam started on the evening of 1st January and ended after 5 PM on 2nd January.  
The 195th day impact for my place of observation will be on 11th July 2016
The fortnight long impact will be from 2nd August to 16th August 2016.

This day was very disappointing and in contrast to the previous day (3rd day of Garbottam). All 5 factors were on the negative side at night and at day time too. The 3rd day was overcast but the 4th day was cloudless for most part. Only after 10 AM, clouds started appearing but the desired aquatic shapes or dense shapes were shattered by winds.

For good Garbottam or pregnancy of clouds, the sky must be overcast or sprinkled with clouds and the wind must be gentle. But what started as gentle wind in the morning, turned a little stronger as day progressed.

In addition to these factors, there must be some moisture in the air or drizzles to make Garbottam successful. The air was dry on this 4th day.

This shows that following the fortnight when Sun enters Poosam on 19th July 2016, the next fortnight when the Sun enters Ayilyam on 2nd August will be dry and windy in my place of observation.
But this need not be a disruptive feature as the month is Aadi known for winds.

The previous period having Aadi-k-kuRi on 29th July must be watched and the Full Moon of 19th July which is likely to be wet could ensure good NE monsoon. Moreover only from the 9th day of Garbottam, the sightings will become crucial for the successful NE Monsoon.

The observation of the 5 factors for day-4  are as follows:

(1) Wind:- Not gentle but stronger. It was still at night time.
Result:- This is not a good factor for rainfall.

(2) Rain:- Nil.
Result:- Does not indicate rains in the said period.

(3) Lightening:- Nil.
Result:-  Does not indicate rains in the said period.

(4) Thunder:- Nil.
Result:- Does not indicate rains in the said period.

(5) Clouds:- Cloudless for most part. After 10 AM, the clouds were shattered by winds. No aquatic shaped clouds.

3-some features:-

(1) Terrestrial :- Behaviour of birds satisfactory.

(2) Atmospheric :- Of the 12 features noted in my blog onGarbottam, (1) only morning twilight was pleasant. No other features were sighted. At sunset, the sky was not red as it was in the previous days. The Sun also was not red at sun set.

(3) Planetary:- (1) Stars appeared  whitish and as faint discs. (2) Except Jupiter all the other planets were in Southern declinations. Planets in northern declinations are desirable for good rainfall.


The period between 2nd August and 16th August 2016 is going to be dry and windy in my place of observation.

The 195th day, namely 11th July 2016 is likely to be dry in my place of observation.

But the SW Monsoon would be doing well where it is due at the time of first half of August.

The planetary combinations are good for the progress of the SW Monsoon in that fortnight.

They are
(1) Closeness of Mercury and Venus continues.

(2) Of them Mercury occupies the same Navamsa in the first few days of the fortnight and is joined with Moon in the watery sign (Cancer)

(3) Mercury and Venus are setting in the western sky with the line-up from east to west as Mercury, Venus and the Sun.

(4) Mercury and Venus in the western sky and in a fixed sign (Leo)

These rainfall causing yogas are present in the corresponding period in support of SW monsoon.
